Endorsements & Reviews

“The prose swirls in graceful arcs that frequently rise to the level of poetry, leavened by mordant humor. . . . A powerful tale, stylishly told.” — Washington Post

“A potent, distinctive autobiography. . . . Flynn’s talents are considerable—he has a compelling voice and a wry sense of humor, especially about himself.” — New York Times Book Review

“Told with energy, critical reflection and sensitivity, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City is less a memoir than a study of one of America’s darker conundrums: homelessness. . . . [It suggests] Lear, Beckett, Faulkner, Genet and forc[es] us to decide which is more painful: a parent’s lost dreams or a child’s lost innocence.” — Los Angeles Times Book Review
